This is the northern half of a two-sheet map of the Holy Land that stands on its own with full borders. The map divides the region into the Twelve Tribes of Israel and covers the coastline from Sidon to Joppa. This is a later edition with the addition of a graticle that have been numbered along the top and left sides of the map.
